Now's the perfect time to start making your own quilted cushions to cuddle up with. In this one-day class in West Hampstead, learn to make your own quilted cushion. Ideal for enthusiastic elves who already know the basics of using a sewing machine.
In this class
Your instructor, Judith Dahmen, is a pro, so she'll take you through all the quilting techniques, such as: basic quilting tips and tricks, foundation paper piecing the block (yes, that phrase will soon make sense), cushion construction and zip insertion. You'll quickly become quilting qualified.
Now you can
Students are asked to bring or buy their own fabric for this class (available from the Village Haberdashery), but sewing machines, tools and thread are all provided. At the end, you'll walk away with your own cushion/cuddle buddy for the winter.
The pilgrims took the art of quilting over to America from Europe. In the early days, it was a practical way for women to get together and socialise while they quilted blankets for winter. So as well as making a pretty pillow in this festive Village Haberdashery class, you'll also get to share a cheery chat too! (And men are more than welcome!)
